IIT graduates from India are making our country proud by leading some of the biggest companies worldwide. These graduates are known for working hard, staying dedicated, and thinking creatively. Getting into IIT isn’t easy. The journey starts before admission. To get into a desired IIT, you need a good rank in the IIT-JEE exam. 

Every year, millions of students prepare for IIT-JEE, but only one gets the top rank. One such brilliant IIT graduate, who ranked first in IIT-JEE, later became an IAS officer by passing the UPSC CSE 2017 exam with the 24th rank. 

This remarkable person is Prudhvi Tej Immadi. He has been in the news multiple times over the past decade. Recently, he became the Chairman and Managing Director of Andhra Pradesh Eastern Power Distribution Company Limited (APEPDCL).

Prudhvi Tej Immadi, born in Dwaraka Tirumala, Andhra Pradesh, topped the IIT-JEE exam in 2011. He studied electrical engineering at IIT Bombay. He’s an inspiration to many. Immadi shared his journey and study tips for both exams, which you can find on Quora and other social media platforms.

Immadi got a job offer from Samsung in South Korea even before the 2014 placements at IIT Bombay began. He also won the Aditya Birla Scholarship the same year.

In 2016, Immadi returned to India and started preparing for the UPSC exam. He applied in 2017 and spent more than 14 hours a day studying. He focused on solving old papers and covering the syllabus thoroughly. 

His hard work paid off, and he secured the 24th rank in the UPSC exam. Now, he leads APEPDCL and plays a vital role in sourcing affordable power during his time as Joint Managing Director of APTRANSCO.
